Veils Series

To paraphrase a quote from Josef Albers, I use Color not for surprising or entertaining affects, but to become aware of the wonders of Color Interaction – Colors influencing and changing each other forth and back. As in the work of Albers, I want to utilize color deception in unique ways.

In my newest paintings, the “Veil Series”, I challenge myself to create an apparent illusion of transparency. However, instead of using transparent glazes, opaque color mixtures are adjusted and combined to appear as transparent. The overlapping formats are kept clear and uncluttered.

I Ching Series

The I Ching, also known as the Book of Changes, was originally an ancient Chinese collection of linear signs to be used as oracles. The geometric design elements of this Oriental system of changes and predictions are what interest me most. So in a way, what better design format for a series of non-objective paintings that might be a collection of "colored linear elements" to act as visual oracles, in "an abstract sense, they (the hexagrams) do not represent objective entities but functions." as quoted from Richard Wilhem's classic work on the Book of Changes.
